Event: Mitsubishi Owner’s Day – MOD 2012

.

When I think of MOD, I immediately hear “EVO”; and frankly, that’s all I need to hear.  I’ve grown to have no particular interest at all in any Mitsubishi other than their Evolution line of cars.  Not to discredit the fans and enthusiasts of Mitsubishi’s other great cars, I can definitely respect the work and passion that goes into any chassis (and there were actually some really cool builds with unique swaps), they’re just not my cup of coffee (I’m switching that saying up).  So, I’ll tell you ahead of time, the only cars you will see in this post are of EVO’s – I suggest checking out Mitsubishi forums or other blogs for full coverage.  With that said, I really enjoy MOD.  It’s one show that I have a very laid back attitude towards. and feel no pressure to show up early and stay until everyone leaves.  In fact, I rolled up over an hour after it started and had left within an hour.  Parking is never an issue because it is in the business district of Cypress and the surrounding businesses are nice enough to let show goers use their lots.  As a result of the show being sponsored by Mitsubishi itself, it is very well organized.  Let me start my post out with a shot of the Monster Sport equipped LOT USA EVO 9 – one of my favorites.  Click past the break to see more EVO’s at EVO..I mean MOD.


Event: The Rally Cars Of Megaweb Festa

.

OK, so this STi technically isn’t a rally car; it’s actually a race car.  However, I figured with Subaru’s ties to the WRC being so strong, I’d include it in the bunch.  One of the coolest things about the Megaweb Festa was that show-goers could take turns riding shotty in all the rally spec cars – all smiles there I’m sure.  If I had the opportunity I’d probably pretend to be the navigator, but I’d give all the directions in English so the Japanese drivers wouldn’t understand.  They’d probably just get distracted and agitated at me – muhahaha.  Check out some shots below the break.
